    I had the calipers serviced by my dealer. There was a TSB about the noise that said it was caused by corrosion between the caliper bracket and the pad retainers.

    The TSB # is 04-006.

    There is a lot of winter road salt in my area which causes brake corrosion. After that time I had my 02V and now have my 07V brakes cleaned and lubed after each winter season.

    Anyone have a good set of do-it-yourself directions on removing the passenger door panel on a 2001 CRV and putting the window back on track?

    You're lucky. A couple of years ago I had to have the Catalytic Converter replaced at a cost of $1600 dollars (Just 7000 miles past the Federal Warranty)

    This weekend it failed smog. Sure enough there's that PO420 code! I have been doing some searching on the 2002 Honda CR-V and Catalytic Converters, and it looks like others are having the same issue.

    You will most likely need to replace the regulator, or parts of it.

    You will most likely need the Helms manual to do that.

    You can buy one from www.helminc.com or download a bootleg copy here.

    My father purchased a 2007 4WD/Navi Honda CR-V in 5/2007 and it has just hit 30k miles. He's wondering about getting a 30k service done on it. I went and looked at the manual online, but was really having a hard time figuring out what needed to get done.

    Last summer, with my 2004 Accord, Between the manual and the info on ownerslink, it was much easier for me to figure out what needed to get done for my 90k service (and I needed to know this because I wanted to go Firestone to get this done instead of the dealer who was charging quite a bit for the service).

    Here is the 2004 Accord scheduled maintenance info for comparison:

    90,000 mi/144,000 km Scheduled Maintenance
    Rotate tires
    Replace air cleaner element
    90,000 mi/144,000 km/6 yrs Scheduled Maintenance
    Inspect drive belt
    Replace dust and pollen filter
    90,000 mi/144,000 km/9 yrs Scheduled Maintenance
    Replace engine oil

    So I took a printout to Firestone actually and got everything done (although I should have looked at the manual maybe more closely - I also got a transmission fluid flush done at this 90k service and should have done it actually at 120k.)

    But looking at the CRV scheduled maintenance info, it's trickier and refers me to the service manual:
    http://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/pubs/OM/9B0707/9B0707MAINIXA.pdf

    So far, since my dad's owned the vehicle, I believe he's done everything at the dealer. The first oil change/tire rotation was free and done at 8,748 miles. at 18,083 he did an oil change again and topped off fluids and set tire pressure (they also removed a nail for $10). And again at 28,676 miles (very recently on 5/17/08) was an oil and filter change, with the fluids topped of and tire pressure set.

    Does anyone have suggestions on what to do and what to look for? I would prefer to do this service at Firestone instead of the dealer, although I haven't gotten the dealer's quote for the service yet. With Firestone I'm a Complete Rewards Gold member so (under the assumption I can use my card w/ my dad's card)I get a free tire rotation, brake inspection, and alignment check also. That could take care of some of the things I need to get checked out.

    Looks easy enough. Why isn't it so simple in Honda's manual? I'll print the 10k, 20k, and 30k printouts and take it over to Firestone and get the stuff done that hasn't been done yet.

    Once you get the "Oil Life" blinking, hold down the reset button until it resets.
  • terryp1terryp1 Posts: 54
    Yo, mhomles3, you obviously didn't read my query.

    My post noted that I held the reset button when "oil life" was blinking.

    So you're just part of the loop for me.

    Honda issued a warning to shops not to use Transmission flush machines on Hondamatics. Since Honda Automatic is a greatly different transmission than the rest of the automatics, it is essentially an automated manual, power flushes could destroy the transmission. Honda recommends 3 successive fluid exchanges with 10 miles driving in between.

    I also doubt that Firestone used Honda ATF Z-1 fluid to flush it with. This creates second potential problem, since Honda ATF Z-1 is not your typical ATF fluid. It is made by Showa oil company of Japan, and there are no reliable substitutes.

    I would strongly suggest you remove whatever fluid Firestone put in there, and replace it with Honda ATF Z-1, 3 times.

    Thanks for this.

    I made a post later in this thread post #5875 about doing the 30k service on my dad's 2007 CR-V. I already placed an order for the air filter and cabin air filter from HandA (I found out about ordering from there through elroy5's advice inthis recent post by elroy5 over at the honda accord 2003-2007 maintenance and repair thread.

    (

    Micron Air brand Pollen Filter
    Also called A/C or Cabin filters.
    Price $15.95

    &

    Engine Air Filter
    Genuine Factory Honda CRV Engine Air Filter
    Price $19.99 )

    By handing the air filter and the cabin air filter on my own - and also recently having done the oil change - There won't be much to do for my 30k from the place of service I go to.

    the link does not work for the schedule...I need a printout of the maintenance schedule..I now have 10,000 miles on my 07 CRv...when is my first service? Does something light up on the dash?????
  • richk6richk6 Posts: 87
    Does something light up on the dash?????

    Have you read your owner's manual? Between your tachometer and speedometer is the maintenance minder. That's the "something" that lights up, and reading your manual will explain the maintenance schedule codes.

    If you want a printout of the maintenance codes go to this owner's link website.

    The link works fine for me. If you click on the tab for under 24,999 miles, you get this link:
    http://www.edmunds.com/maintenance/maintenance.do?step=step2&year=2007&make=Hond- a&model=CR-V&style=EX-L+4dr+SUV+w%2FNavigation+%282.4L+4cyl+5A%29&mileage=10000&- engine=4INAG2.4&transmission=AUTOMATIC&zip=02809&synpartner=edmunds

    This tells you the proposed scheduled maintenance, but I believe with the CR-Vs, they are designed to adjust to how you drive (although I'm confused on how oil life would change if you were to start using Mobil 1 or something - shouldn't you get more mileage out of that?)
  • srizvi1srizvi1 Posts: 232
    yikes, thanks for the warning. I'll head back over to firestone with a printout of this post and see what they say. I've also referenced your post over on the Honda Accord (2003-2007) Maintenance and Repair thread to help out others.

    Here is the link to that post.

    I have no complaints so far with my Honda CRV 2007 reg. pick up or on the road. Though I use mainly freeway everyday - still I manage to get only 22.5 miles per gallon - my only complaint. I already did two servicing - 7500 miles and 15000 at my Honda dealer and I am the only driver. But for few months, I having problems with my accelerator :cry: . I need to push the accelerator very hard and gets bit slow down in the middle of the highway. And the speed goes down from 70 mpg to 55 mpg and it takes atleast 1 or 2 mins to go up. It is very frustrating. Why is it? :confuse: What should I do? This is quite new to my CRV 2007 as I haven't experienced it before. Thanks for all the responses in advance.

    Same problem on 2003 CRV. Bulbs replaced, fuses checked to no avail. Did you find a resolution? It sounds like a pattern failure...
    Regards

    I went to my honda dealer and reported the problem. They found that the transmission fluid was running very low and hence the issue. Replaced the transmission fluid and test drove and gave me the keys back. Now it is running smooth.

    I went for my 2nd services just 45 days back (1st week of May) and spent $300 for the services (15000 miles 2nd service) which includes the check and filling up of transmission fluid. I am wondering did the guys did any check or not. Is a good idea to report to Honda or the manager of my Honda dealership? Advise me.

    Did they charge for filling the transmission fluid?

    Yes, I'd discuss the discrepancy with the service manager. At 15,000 miles, your car shouldn't have needed any transmission fluid. New cars don't consume transmission fluid that fast. And it's even less likely it consumed any in 45 days. Was it properly filled to begin with? Something doesn't add up.

    The service manager should have an explanation that makes sense to you.
